This was a weird one. It's obviously a classic, and it has a compelling central figure. It's well written and the narrative is interesting. However, I can't quite put my finger on it, but there was something about this book which just makes me feel very uneasy. When I think about it, I sort of shiver and feel a bit ill. I want to give it two stars because of that, but any book which provokes such a strong reaction in me must be doing something right.
